Utah Gymnastics Gets Win On Emotional Senior Night

Mar 3, 2023, 9:00 PM

SALT LAKE CITY –Β It was an emotional win for Utah gymnastics saying good-bye to three seniors on Senior Night while also honoring Aaron Lowe’s mother, Donna who was in attendance to cheer the Red Rocks on.

Abby Brenner, Cristal Isa, and Jillian Hoffman competed their last routines in the Huntsman as Abby Paulson, Jaedyn Rucker, and Maile O’Keefe all announced they would be back in 2024.Β  Isa capped off her final beam routine with a perfect 10, bringing the house down.

The Utes walked away with a convincing 197.925 – 196.675 victory over the Arizona Wildcats after another big win at home last week against Cal. Utah will be on the road to compete with Oregon State March 11 before the Pac-12 Championship takes place at the Maverik Center in West Valley, Utah the following week on March 18.
